Well Hello There!
I’m Kate, the boudoir photographer behind Boutique Photography by Kate in Naperville, Illinois.
Once upon a time, I was a photographer shooting primarily families and kids, offering lifestyle and photojournalistic photography for folks in and around the Chicago area.
One day, someone asked if I would be a boudoir photographer for her.
After much thought and research, I agreed.
It turned out to be one of the most fun, gratifying sessions ever. It produced beautiful portraits for a lovely woman who hadn’t felt all that saucy in a long time.
It was amazing to be a part of it, from the planning before the shoot to Reveal appointment where she got to see her portraits for the first time – and seeing the look on her face as it sunk in that this super-hotty in the pics was actually her.
Kate is a phenomenal photographer! From the first moment we met to the time my photos were delivered, she was polished, professional and friendly. She has a great eye for capturing beauty and really did everything she could to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera.
It was so awesome making her feel pretty through my photography and witnessing the increased confidence she experienced – I decided I should try it myself and set up a boudoir shoot for myself.
The experience of my own boudoir shoot was equally amazing – I felt beautiful, saucy, sassy and proud of how I looked – even after a couple of kids. That extra boost in confidence has stuck with me long after that shoot – and now I’m hooked on making other awesome ladies get their groove back too! I began shooting under my general photography business name – Appelman Images Photography – but as a boudoir photographer decided to open a division dedicated solely to Glamour and Boudoir – Boutique Photography by Kate!
Whether you’re single or coupled, a bride-to-be or married for 30 years – no kids or 10 kids – a custom, sassy-fying Glamour or Boudoir shoot with Boutique Photography by Kate in Naperville, IL will remind you of how beautiful you are and give your step a little extra sashay for a long time to come.
